in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the age of 50, there's a big gap, 18 point lead for the president among voters under the age of 50. a smaller lead for governor romney among voters 50 and older so the republicans are withstanding the attacks on the ryan budget, the medicare attacks, but governor romney would like that lead among older, more reliable, more republican voters to be a little bit bigger than 52-46. that's one thing he needs to work on. this is significant. like in michigan, the auto bailout plays big in ohio and look at this. you might say the president's only getting 41% of wh
to the other images this week. one of romney's supporters, republican governor chris christie, applauding the president. >> i cannot thank him enough. >> reporter: an argument he's trying to make. >> i'll reach out to both sides of the aisle. i'll reach across the aisle in washington. i'll endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: governor romney in new hampshire today. he'll be here on the eve of the election. the president here tomorrow. signs they are taking those four electoral votes very seriously. particularly in a race, as you know, is a dead-heat as we head into election day. >> hard to believe, only three days left. david, thank you. >>> joining us now for more on this is abc news political consultant matthew dowd. good morning, matt. >> good morning. >> so curious to know who you think has the edge on tuesday? >> this marathon that hasn't been canceled has gone on for 700 days. everybody is ready for this thing to end. the candidates are exhausted. i think in the aftermath of what's gone on this week, there's a little wind behind the sail
a lot. i know a lot of republicans had hoped governor romney wouldn't have to be spending time in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. n
be coming our way from delaware. >>> back to politics now. today republican presidential nominee mitt romney heads for florida to campaign with senator marco rubio. governor romney and vice presidential candidate paul ryan had a big rally in ohio, and today congressman ryan is on a bus tour across the state. nbc's ron mott is traveling in ohio with mr. ryan so with a good morning to you, ron. let's talk about all the stops on this bus tour today in ohio. how many do you have scheduled? >> hey there, alex. good saturday morning to you. i should have taken the pillow from the hotel to sit on because we're on a nine-stop bus tour over 400 miles today and tomorrow with congressman paul ryan. they're trying to close the deal here in ohio. we expect to see president obama and governor romney hit these battle grounds hard over the next ten days. ohio is perhaps the most important of them, especially for governor romney. because no republican candidate has won the white house, alex, without winning this state. last night as you mentioned, he and paul ryan held a huge rally in north canton last night
that candidate romney is willing to drop that ad. >> i think it's not representative of the republican party. how i'm going to finish answering the question is that what's happening is democrats and president obama are doing a trumped-up war on women. they started it up in majority of. march. women are smarter than that. romney is tied 47% with oba outhe vot this is about our pocketbooks and bank accounts and jobs and women has been effected with the jobless rate under president obama and that's what it's about. it's not working. >> i don't think it's funniy at all. it's not funny because we are not going to fall for it in the end. women were told that the reason why republicans wanted to get into congress is because they wanted to do something about the debt. they got in there and immediately attacked the panon parenthood. they passed 26 laws in hundreds of states. they have here a woman who is attacked, called a slut for wanting access to contraception and a candidate that just said, i wouldn't phrased it that way. exactly how would he have phrased it? >> that's a false narrative. >> i don't wa
by the hurricane or not. republican challenger mitt romney went ahead and held a rally in avon lake, ohio, this morning but said everyone's thoughts should be with those in the storm's path. >> u.s. with full hearts and clear eyes can see what's happening across the country right now. and on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. we face these kind of challenges before. as we have it's good to see how americans come together. this looks like another time when we need to come together all across the country, even here in ohio, and make sure that we give of our support to the people who need it. >> woodruff: romney planned an afternoon even in iow before suspeing his schedu tonght hen the rricane is is coming ashore. instead, his campaign loaded emergency supplies on to the romney bus in virginia to deliver to storm relief centers after sandy hits. president obama had been in orlando, florida, last night. he delivered pizzas to a local campaign office but called off an appearance there today with former president clinton. >> which means that
pleasant beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back
back. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney are making every minute count on the campaign trail but this morning there will be a brief pause as they keep their eyes on the last jobs reports before election day. we're live in new york with this morning's business beat. we'll talk about the jobs report in a bit. first let's take a look at the markets. nice rally. we needed it. >> yeah, good morning. that's right. the ball was off and running. a lot of economic data pept up from earlier in the week. the federal government shut down and famously wall street shut down for two days, first time we've seen that by weather since 1888 closing the stock exchange across the land. clearly some buying power coming into the market. retail sales better than expected. we did see home prices rising on wednesday so basically a lot of good economic data has got people into a buying mood. the biggest gains in six weeks yesterday. >> good. we needed that. let's get back to the big news of the day. it's going to be this last jobs report coming out and it could have a big impact o
picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these states, it's all silly. i think if governor romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to s
, the des moines register has not in decades endorsed a republican. they have said that governor romney, and they make interesting points about it's the economy that's most important to people, and even though both president obama and governor romney are harvard law graduates and good family men, when it comes to running a business and getting people back to work, which at least 23 million people are concerned about, governor romney is the man for the job and the des moines register is endorsing governor romney. >> huge in iowa, potentially. obviously completely stuck in the polls, the president seems to have had more people coming out in early voting but the statewide polling in iowa shows romney gaining. six electoral votes, it could come down to a margin of victory in the single digits. this one matters. it's also the case that the des moines register has gotten this endorsement correct in five of the -- all five of the last races. they endorsed al gore in 2000 and he got most of the popular vote. 80s pretty good bellwether. >> we're going to take a look at that in the next hour. the
's largest newspaper, the des moines register, endorsed romney. it had not backed a republican for president since 1972. as for the vice presidential running mates, both remained on the campaign trail with just eight precious days before election day. republican paul ryan was in florida. and vice president biden replaced the president at a late day event in ohio. so what impact will the storm have on the final week of the so what impact will the storm have on the final week of the race? to examine that and the state of the campaign, we are joined by susan page, washington bureau chief of "u.s.a. today," and dan balz, chief correspondent of the "washington post." welcome to you both. dan, to you first. what effect is this big storm having on the campaign? >> well, as you've reported, it has shut down campaign activity for the most part. that will continue to be the case at least until wednesday when both campaigns re-evaluate whether it's prudent or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign trail. they're operating with very little information. we can't kn
, republicans have clearly emphasized mitt romney has emphasized the economy. one thing, i want to ask about this it's not been brought up much, the obama campaign has made strategic decision not t try to blame the economy on bush even though let's face it, most of the damage occurred just as he was leaving office. >> he had to come up with a new message. >> point is the economy tanked in late '07 or -- mid '08. obama president campaign not been trying to say this is bush's fault. but a lot of people recognize that there was clearly republican involvement there. i'm just wondering if women voters are more likely to say to themselves, i'mor the economy but i don't trust the republican guy because the economy tanked when a republican was in office. >> for one thing, look, i think republicans and democrats are both to blame for where our country is today. it wasn't one party that set up the $16 trillion debt. i think president obama put the pedal to the metal but both parties for blame. i think that's where we are as a country, we have two different choices. what mitt romney is talking about is
. >> the next president of the united states governor mitt romney. >> christie is one of mitt romney's most outspoken supporters on the trail picked to give the keynote address at the republican national convention. >> real leaders don't follow polls. real leaders change polls. >> if history teaches us anything, it's that some things are bigger than politics. in washington i'm terry dun ham. >> it seems republican nominee mitt romney is softening the attacks on his opponent. yesterday romney held three rallies in florida but did not mention president obama's name at all. while romney was in florida, obama was in new jersey touring storm damage there and romney is now getting ready to kick off the final days of campaigning. while the election is a big deal for the future of our country, no doubt about it, we have certainly seen the campaigning mode for a whole lot of other issues, and it's probably fair to say that some of you are ready for the election to be over. if you're one of those people you're not alone. we want to show you what happened to a girl, 4 years old, when she heard the ele
. then the governor romney's most reasonable scenario is to take ohio. no republican has ever won without i9. if governor romney can get those votes plus virginia around north carolina, that would get him to 266. over here in the east, he would need just one more. any one of the remaining states, if governor romney can do florida, virginia, north carolina and ohio, any one of the remaining states would put him over the top. that's what makes this one so, so important. so if he does that, then he's got a pretty interesting terrain. he's competitive in colorado, this one tends to be leaning democratic. the romney campaign says it's competitive, but consistent polling in the wisconsin. this one here, romney campaign says it's competitive, let's for hypothetical let's say that's a safer pick to give that to the president. i'm going to take it back and make it a tossup state again. i was in colorado recently. this is a true toss-up. for the sake of argument say governor romney gets that. then you're out here in the east again, 253, 257. for the sake of argument give that to the president, you're
biden hitting governor romney and republicans on taxes in a campaign event in wisconsin. >> you cannot erase what you have already done. they voted to extend tax cuts for the wealthy giving $500 trillion tax cut so 120,000 families. lou: that's a lot of money. 500 trillion. you have to love the vice-president, his view on things and, his expression. r a little perspective, the national debt is 16 trillion. we'll just leave it there. my next guest says there is no case on economic grounds to raise taxes. joining me now, senior economic writer for the wall street journal, stephen moore, author of the new boo the truth about opportunity, taxes, and wealth in america. great to have you with us. >> great to be with you. can i say something? this is really the problem in washington. you know, and it's not just joe biden. these politicians can't tell the difference beween a billion and a trillion. the the numbers are so bi now, everybody's eyes glaze over. a trillion dollars, million million. all lot of zeros. lou: and you know what, we, like you, cover these big numbers all the time. and i c
that romney is bringing out michael barone talked about this sort of the aflew went soft republicans, moderate voters in the suburbs coming out to vote for romney. one of the reasons why pennsylvania is in play. take a look at bucks, montgomery, belle and chester counties in the -- delaware and chester counties in the southeastern part of the state and romney is going to run better than republicans have run in recent years. >> sean: and the philly suburbs might not be as strong for dem democrats and pittsburgh and other places i would expect big turnout there, too. let's go to virginia. in every scenario it is kind of assumed that governor romney will take virginia. up two points on average in the polls that i'm following closely. three points in some. why are you so confident in virginia? what are the signs there that you are looking at? >> first of all, i'm looking at the polls in which he is behind like the washington post poll and governor romney is ahead among independents, strong among republicans and losing the state? i don't think so. look at ratio of republicans to democrats and find
: that was republican presidential nominee mitt romney today giving what the campaign is now calling his closing arguments before voters head to the polls on tuesday. and back with more as we look at our predictions for tuesday the architect karl rove. i want to go back to ohio because as you pointed out we went through all of the numbers, very, very important. then we have got the coal factor in eastern, ohio. you have obviously this election is usually won or host in managemen hamilton county, e cincinnati, dayton surrounding areas. a lot of catholic voters out there that are not happy about the mandate. are these type of things maybe that are not picked up by polls? >> yeah, and look i don't think they are necessarily picked up by the early vote. i have been looking at what are called the ohio river counties. coal country in southeastern ohio and you look at those and they are okay in terms of the turnout with you look at the sentiment in that area and you recognize and realize there are probably people who are nominal democrats who voted early and ain't voting for obama and then you take a l
across the country is better than romney's. and so i think because of the recall effort the republicans are running neck and neck. i think the republicans mitt romney has a better chance to win wisconsin than he does nevada. nevada the ground game, harry reid's political machine, i think obama is going to win, nevada. >> greta: you are from wisconsin, john, and you were just there. >> i was. everywhere you go you meet people who voted for obama the last time and are going to vote for mitt romney this time around. you have a lot of people switching sides over theret wal energized republicans and brought independents into the republican party who liked what scott walker was doing. there are couple of problems facing mitt romney. one is that the recall electorate that gave scott walker a 7 point margin of victory supported obama. there is still a problem there of 500,000 voters who came out in 2008 who didn't come out out in the recall. people think those are obama voters and if they come out that could spell bad news. >> greta: bart star now endorsed governor romney and in wisconsin he is
on gay rights. >> the expectation was that romney would do very well. >> mitt romney, the republican candidate... >> i ran into someone who was not so friendly to us who said, "did you come to see your guy destroyed?" i paced in the back of faneuil hall during the entire debate. >> good evening and welcome. >> narrator: romney directly confronted edward kennedy. >> senator kennedy, my impression has been that you have followed a campaign, as soon as the primary was over, of trying to divert the voters' attention from the issues at hand, and instead making personal attacks on me which are unfounded, unfair and sleazy. >> narrator: kennedy had unleashed negative tv ads. >> romney. it's not just what he did to his workers and business that's the problem. it's what he might do to us in the senate. >> kennedy was a master politician and what he did was he used a series of filmed ads to its maximal effect. >> mitt romney says he helped create 10,000 jobs. the former workers at scm in marion, indiana, say something else. >> i'd like to say to the people of massachusetts, if you think it can
on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonight? >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if he wins ohio, i think he wins and maybe president obama could feel the same way about it. this is probably the key state. >> greta: why do you all leave, ohio, and spread out across the country? why don't you all just stay in ohio if that is so important, got to get every vote there. >> because you got to make sure you win the others too. you have to make sure you win, virginia, and win colorado and win wisconsin and you win florida. florida you can't take for granted. florida is just as critical. ma
after him on bane. gwen: the republican primary that very thing happened. mitt romney's profile is just the wrong profile for the state of ohio. but that said, in the southeast quadrant where your appalachia, west virginia, the coal country, they have done a very aggressive job as depicting the president as having a war on coal. if they can get out the vote quite heavily and get out the vote in southeast ohio, it will make a difference. gwen: how about the independents? we were supposed to be watching for the independents and where they were going to go. do we have any sense of that. >> mitt romney has been doing better among independents in many of the polls. the question is what is the nature of the independents an how has the campaign itself caused people to identify themselves with one part or the other and not as independents anymore. so the independents that we're talking about in 2012 may not be the independents that we were talking about in 2008. that gets to some of the disagreement amongst pollsters. it's all about measuring who's a likely voter and how accurate those models
independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in 2008 when this bragging that we get every year was being done by a john mccain republ
